Usage Considerations

A director’s order can be issued for any breach of the Consumer Protection Act, the Cemeteries Act or their regulations and is used as a tool that requires a person to come into compliance with legislation. A director's order can be issued to a supplier if the supplier: has breached the Consumer Protection Act or Regulations; uses any form, agreement, letter or other document that's misleading or contains a term that misrepresents fair trade regulations; or publishes an advertisement that's misleading or contains a term that breaks fair trade regulations. The director's order can direct a person to stop engaging in anything that's described in the order, and to take any measures specified in the order to ensure that fair trade regulations are followed.
